This stretch of coastline has often been described as the most beautiful in the entire Mediterranean. One after another, green and rocky mountains plunge dramatically into the Mediterranean blue sea. The famous Amalfi Coast road clings to the mountainsides revealing a succession of picture book views each seemingly more stunning than the one before. Not so many years ago much of this coast was only accessible by boat. Now it is a fashionable resort area which retains the charm of past times.

The main beach in Positano is very crowded. Most of the beach is controlled by one of the clubs where they charge for access and for lounges, thus leaving little room for non-paying visitors. A short walk to the north is Fornillo. They too have...More

Wonderful staff and food. Really loved the service of a sun lounge and towel without the hassle of lying on the sand.

Bright blue clear water, dark sand, gentle waves most days; at the base of very high, steep cliffs that would seem too steep to build on, but residences and hotels are stacked beautifully to the cliff tops, sometimes obscured by low clouds. Restaurants and bars...More

My partner and I walked from Positano main port/beach up the steps and round to Fornillo Beach. Easy walk and peaceful. We did the walk approx 10:30 on a week day and it was lovely and took about 15mins. The beach itself was rocky and...More

Even though Positano looks like a very hilly town, but after walking on foot up and down the stairs several times a day, I did not find it physically challenging or tiring at all mostly because the steps are not steep and there are always...More

We stayed up the steps in Hotel Vittoria so quite handy for us to get to. We just lay on towels on the beach rather than pay 10/12 euros for a bed. Pebbles are quite hard to walk on but you get used to it.

Fornillo is a great and easy thing to do, less than 2 mins by boat from the main pier, its best to book ahead to get a front seat, but that doesn't guarantee an Italian won't move their chair in front of you anyways! which...More
